Pictures of the week

Here's your look at highlights from the weekly AP photo report, a gallery featuring a mix of front-page photography, the odd image you might have missed and lasting moments our editors think you should see.

This week's gallery includes worshippers visiting Mecca during the Hajj pilgrimage; a shepherds championships competitor with his charges in Germany; and a carousel rider in Paris.

This gallery contains photos from the week of Aug. 3-Aug. 9, 2019.

This gallery was produced by Patrick Sison in New York.
